Super Bowl 2016: The Super Bowl pregame show has taken on a life of its own. Even though the analysis is generally banal and there’s nothing new to say about the actual game, networks still pull out all the stops with elaborate studio sets, dozens of analysts and (in recent years) live musical performances. #Super Bowl 2016# If nothing else, the pregame show certainly sells the grand spectacle of the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl 2016 betting primer: How do odds, spreads and prop bets work?

Super Bowl 2016: Super Bowl 50 will feature more money gambled than any other sporting event in 2016. We’ve got a rundown of important words and phrases so you know what people are talking about.

Super Bowl 50 kicks off this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS. It will be the most televised event of the year. It will also be the most wagered sporting event. No other event sees the kind of legal and illegal money wagered like the Super Bowl. Whether you are betting at a casino in Las Vegas, through an online sportsbook like Bovada.lv or in your work office pool, a large chunk of America ends up wagering something on the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl 2016

Whether you are potentially entering an office pool or you want some talking points for a friend’s Super Bowl party, here are a few key terms and phrases related to gambling and the Super Bowl.

What is the spread?
The spread for Super Bowl 50 is currently set at six points, according to most sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. The Carolina Panthers are the favorites and the Denver Broncos are the underdogs. If you bet on the Panthers as 6-point favorites and they lose or win by fewer than six points, you have failed to cover the spread. If you bet on the Broncos to cover the spread, you are anticipating they will lose the game by fewer points than the spread. If you bet on the Broncos as 6-point underdogs and they win the game or lose by five or fewer points, you have “covered” the spread. If the Panthers win by six points, it is a push.

What does it mean to be giving and getting points?
If you are a favorite, you are “giving” the other team points. If you an underdog, you are “getting” points from the other team to make up for the fact that you are the underdog. In the case of this game, the Panthers are giving two points, while the Broncos are getting two points. The idea is that the favorite is better, so for betting purposes they are giving up points to the lesser team.

How is the spread determined?
The 6-point spread does not mean the Panthers are two points better than the Broncos. Sportsbooks do not set the spread based on who they think is better. They set the spread based on who they think gamblers will view as the better team. The goal is to get an even amount gambled on each team. If a sportsbook gets the same amount of money for each team, they are guaranteed a profit on the spread. Sportsbooks take a percentage of each bet, which is called the vigorish, or vig. If the wagers end up split 50-50 between the two teams, the sportsbook walks away profiting from the vig.

Will the spread change before the game?
Yes. The line opened with the Panthers as 3.5-point favorites. The betting public is strong in its support of the Panthers. Most of the betting public is betting on the Panthers and sportsbooks have raised the number in hopes of evening out the money involve with the Broncos. If everybody bets on the Panthers and the Panthers cover, the house loses.

What is the moneyline?
You can also bet strictly on which team will win the game. This is called betting on the moneyline. For Sunday’s game, the favored Panthers are as much as -255 on the moneyline. This means that if you bet $255 moneyline on the Panthers, you will win $100. The underdog Broncos are listed as high as -215. This means if you bet $100 you will win $215. If you bet the moneyline on the underdog Broncos, you will win more money than if you bet the spread because you are predicting them to win and not just lose by no more than five points. If you bet on the favored Panthers, you will get worse odds (and win less money) than if you bet on the moneyline.

What is the over/under?
The point total for Super Bowl 49 is set at 45.5 points. One can bet on whether the two teams will combine to score more than that total (OVER), or less than that total (UNDER).

What are prop bets?
The Super Bowl is well known for the numerous prop bets one can wager on. A prop bet takes individual events within or connected to the game and allows you to bet on them. They can be connected to the on-field action, meaning you can bet on things like total passing yards for Cam Newton or Peyton Manning, total receiving yards for Demaryius Thomas or Ted Ginn Jr., or total rushing yards for C.J. Anderson or Jonathan Stewart. However, for the Super Bowl, prop bets will also be incredibly random. You can bet on things like how long the National Anthem will last, how many times “dab” or “dabbing” will be said by announcers or even whether the coin toss will come up heads or tails. Super Bowl 2016

Is my office pool legal?
It actually depends on your state. Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Illinois are among those that say it is illegal. Colorado, Maine and South Carolina are among states that actually carve out exceptions for social gambling. But either way, why worry about technicalities? Just don’t tell HR!

What are Super Bowl squares?
Super Bowl squares use a 10-by-10 grid featuring the numbers 0 through 9 on top and down the left column. The row of numbers represents the last digit of the score of one team, while the column of numbers represents the last digit of the score of another team. Usually, the scores are applied to the first, second and third quarters, and then the final score. The numbers can go in order 0 through 9, or they can be randomly ordered.

Super Bowl 2016: Las Vegas’ Latest Odds for Favorites and Sleepers

Super Bowl 2016: Get ready for a Super Bowl 50 matchup between the Carolina Panthers and the New England Patriots.While there are still nearly three full weeks of the regular season to play along with three rounds of NFL playoffs, the Patriots and Panthers are favored to get to Levi’s Stadium to decide the NFL championship February 7.

Super Bowl 2016

Super Bowl 50

The Panthers are undefeated through their first 13 games and have three winnable games remaining against the New York Giants, Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers left on their schedule. Going 16-0 in the regular season does not assure any team of a Super Bowl championship, and no team knows that better than the Patriots.

They accomplished that feat in 2007 and led through the majority of the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl, but they were denied by the Giants. Nevertheless, the Panthers are plus-375 co-favorites to get to the Super Bowl and win the game this year, according to Odds Shark.

The Patriots are 11-2 as they get ready to host the Tennessee Titans in their last regular-season home game. While they have suffered a number of injuries to players like Dion Lewis and LeGarrette Blount, the Pats are also plus-375 favorites to win Super Bowl 50. They are clear favorites to represent the AFC in the championship game.

Super Bowl 50: Odds for Winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy

Team Odds
Carolina Panthers +375
New England Patriots +375
Arizona Cardinals +550
Seattle Seahawks +600
Pittsburgh Steelers +750
Green Bay Packers +1,000
Denver Broncos +1,200
Kansas City Chiefs +1,600
Cincinnati Bengals +2,200
Indianapolis Colts +5.000
Minnesota Vikings +5.000
N.Y. Giants +5.000
N.Y. Jets +5.000
Philadelphia Eagles +5.000
Washington Redskins +10,000
Houston Texans +10,000
Odds Shark
The Arizona Cardinals are right behind those two teams at plus-400, and they are considered to be a legitimate threat because of their talent on both sides of the ball. The Cardinals rank first in total offense and fourth in fewest yards allowed, and quarterback Carson Palmer has been lighting it up all season. He has thrown for 4,003 yards with a 31-9 TD-interception ratio, and the Cardinals show no signs of slowing down.

The Seattle Seahawks have reeled off four straight one-sided victories and have improved to 8-5 after a brutal start to their season. They are now showing signs that they could be in a position to get back to the Super Bowl for a third straight season because quarterback Russell Wilson is on fire. He has thrown 16 TD passes in the last four weeks and he has not thrown an interception. The Seahawks are plus-600 to win the Super Bowl.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are the No. 2-rated team in the AFC to win the Super Bowl, according to Odds Shark at plus-750. The Steelers host the Denver Broncos (plus-1,200) in Week 15, and prior to the start of that game, the Steelers find themselves on the outside of the playoffs looking in.

However, Ben Roethlisberger has an excellent rapport with wide receivers Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and Markus Wheaton, and the Steelers have the capability of lighting up the scoreboard on an every-week basis.

No other team in either conference has odds of less than plus-1,000 to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The Green Bay Packers were rated as a likely Super Bowl champion by many of the preseason publications, but their once-formidable offense has slowed considerably, and they have fallen to plus-1,000. Still, it would not be wise to count out the Packers as long as Aaron Rodgers is under center.

One week ago, the Cincinnati Bengals were holding on to the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. However, they lost their Week 14 home game to the Steelers and quarterback Andy Dalton broke his thumb. Their prospects for winning a title have taken a severe hit, and their odds have fallen to plus-2,200.The Kansas City Chiefs may be unlikely champions, but they have opened a lot of eyes around the league with their seven-game winning streak. Alex Smith is not a down-the-field bomber, but he rarely throws interceptions, and the Chiefs have rallied after a 1-5 start. They are rated a plus-1,600 to win the title for the first time since Super Bowl IV.

Their opponent in that game was the Minnesota Vikings, a team that has been to four Super Bowls but has never won it. The Vikings have a powerful running game and a nasty defense, and they are plus-5,000 to win the Super Bowl. That would seem to indicate that the Vikings may still be a year or more from winning the championship, but don’t tell that to aggressive head coach Mike Zimmer.
